TL;DR: Thelma Louise; Dyke Remix
"TL;DR: Thelma Louise; Dyke Remix" is a parody sequel, queer rock musical that asks the question "why do strong female characters always gotta die?" and turns the death as freedom narrative for women in film on its head. It starts mid-air in a Thunderbird convertible suspended over the Grand Canyon and features two women of color as T and L backed by a band of badass rockstars. Loud and proud, TL;DR resists the idea that queer/lesbian narratives have to live in subtext and defies the "bury your gays" trope by giving our heroines the ending they deserve. TL;DR takes on the patriarchy, the gaytriarchy, and anything else standing in the way of T and L's love.
